We were very happy and grateful for the three nights stay on the Brownell mooring…while our 72 year old wooden sloop was swelling. The $35 rate was more than reasonable. Thanks so much!

Une petite ville charmante ! Nous avons profité du pump-out gratuit pour vider nos réservoir ainsi que de l’eau pour remplir ceux d’eau douce. Les indications pour notre arrivé dans la baie étaient extraordinaires, claires et facile a suivre. Simple et efficace très très apprécier après un passage dans le Cap Cod canal mouvementé!

The folks at Brownell are excellent. This was a re-schedule (for me) of a trip I was disappointed to have to cancel last season. A pleasure to talk to on the phone every time I've interacted w/ the team there. As for the moorings themselves - their row is easy to find, they are well-marked, and clearly well-maintained. Was a great weekend - thank you, Brownell!

Moorings are well placed and close to the town dock and it’s dinghy dock. On a busy July weekend all 8 moorings were open. The $35 price was reasonable, especially given that there are no additional facilities or services available. Mattapoisett is a pretty harbor. Lots of boats. It is quite large and would not offer great protection in a blow. Only downside is that there is really nothing in “town” at all. No services to speak of. One restaurant. For a quiet stopover en route to/from the Canal, this is a trap so able stopover. But for any on shore activity, would look elsewhere.

Cute town. Nice dinghy dock. Easy mooring pick up. Rolly SE winds but they warned us about that. Otherwise it was great! Nice town to walk around in.

Welcome to Mattapoisett harbor! Brownell moorings are located in the center of the harbor south of the Mattapoisett Town Dock. Our moorings can be identified by their cone-shaped buoys, an orange top and blue band. We offer nightly or short term rentals. Harbor launch service is available from Mattapoisett Boat Yard May 1st through Columbus Day.

Founded in 1954 by David (Fred) Brownell, the inventor of the boat stand and hydraulic boat hauling trailer, Brownell Systems has been family owned and operated for over 65 years. Brownell operates a fleet of hydraulic boat hauling trailers, providing boat hauling, launching and crane service at the Mattapoisett boat ramp and over-the-road boat transport throughout New England and the Northeast U.S.

In addition, Brownell Systems offers a do-it-yourself boat storage yard 1 mile from the Mattapoisett harbor. Experience the difference in our clean and paved yard where owners and crew maintain total control of their boats and enjoy a boater cooperative atmosphere.
